Michael Kors Bag Review

I went to Bicester Village in October with my Mum and Sister. It was a really beautiful, sunny, if cold day and was lovely to spend some quality time together. We shopped, lunched and I impulsively bought something as I had been saving so hard lately I just wanted to be a little wild!

So, under ‘bad’ influence. I brought my first Michael Kors bag. It was half price, brand new in and such a stunning statement colour!

I adore it, sadly I cannot find this any where on the internet to link it but I’ve attached Michael’s site for you.

Now I had gotten this out of its dust sleeve and used it probably 3 times. On the 4th time, out to dinner with friends, I head back to my car, laid it on the passenger seat and noticed a blue disk in the foot well.

I was really confused as I picked it up, I sat for ages trying to figure it out what it was. Turns out its the blue disc from the inner keyring! Now if this was a £20 bag I’d of either just thrown the disc away or glued it back in myself.

But this bag is worth £320.

This may be a drop in the ocean to some people, it may not be considered much for a ‘designer’ bag but for me? It was an investment and to have this happen after 4 uses I was so upset.

I’ve gathered everything up and am taking it back to my local store to see what they can do about it, if it can be replaced/returned or if they can send it ‘away’ to be fixed.

Edit: They thankfully took the bag in, no quabbles. They asked if i’d like to return it or send it off for repair, they seemed as upset as I did that it broke. So in 4 weeks hopefully it’ll be back and better than new!

Champneys Review

bty

We all know from previous posts that I like a little bit of Champneys. It’s a lovely collection with indulgent at home treats that really do feel quite Spa like.

This gorgeous taster tin is no different. It includes a shower cream, body lotion, daily scrub, body butter and a lofa.

The scrub is gorgeous, the grit inside is tiny and feels quite delicate, just what you’d need if you was going to indulge in it every day (personally not something I’d recommend).

The boy lotion and shower cream are both thick and creamy, the cream is a real treat in the shower and I wouldn’t say you need much of either to make a difference in your routine.

The body butter is incredibly thick and indulgent. I’ve been enjoying using this on more special occasions where I want something that’s going to pack a punch in the moisture department.

Soap and Glory Mini Set – Review

bty

Whats not to love about Soap and Glory? Their nice price tag? Their fun but also classic theme or the products themselves?

I adore a little bit of Soap and Glory to indulge in every now and again.

This think, creamy body butter was no different, a lovely little slick up the legs, round the elbows and ankles keeps them in pretty good nick throughout the winter.

Their body washes tend to be very smooth and slippery in the shower, I enjoy the lather up they give when uses with a lofa too.

The also do gorgeous gift sets too, never a fail when their products are so versatile and usable.

Hand Care Kit

Heathcote and Ivory Hand Care Kit. This was a delightful little gift that I received for Christmas; as you can probably tell from previous posts, I quite like to do my nails and care for my hands!

dav

This little set was delightfully received and is actually really quite nice.

I’ve found the balm a bit difficult to work with, its nice when applied but actually getting it out of the tin was a little challenging. I ended up swirling my finger around until it had warmed and I had a good layer. It was nice but I didn’t think anything long-lasting to it.

bty

I enjoyed the hand cream, this was thick, luxurious and a little went quite far, this swatch did nearly both hands and wrists. I will be popping this into my handbag to use on the coming winter months!

bty

I’ve not yet had a really thick lather up with this but it’s quite pleasant, I feel it would be ideal for a handbag too. As you know sometime when you use public restrooms and their annoyingly out of soap? Yeah, nifty little thing to carry around!

bty

I havent used this yet as I want to save it for a pamper night but it smells gorgeous.

The whole set does actually, I’d definitely recommend this as a nice gift set for someone, I for one can say it was very nicely receive for a nail enthusiast that likes to take care of her hands!
